If You Aren't Hungry, Thank a Farmer!
A look at the farms and warehouses we've gleaned in 2015.
We've delivered over 300,000 pounds of fresh produce to local food banks from 19 farms! See the map above for the farmers who have supported our efforts! Please support your local farmers!
Fields of Grace was established in April 2006 as a ministry at West Side Church in Richland, WA. The program began when 2nd Harvest Tri-Cities voiced a need for fresh produce for area food banks and area farmers wanted to donate a portion of their crops, but lacked the resources to pick the additional produce.
We provide the hands of service that pick the fruits and vegetables for residents in need. Since its inception, the ministry has trained over 1,000 volunteers who have logged over 8,000 hours of service to harvest nearly 900,000 pounds of produce. This produce has included apples, sweet corn, carrots, sweet cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, prunes, tomatoes, potatoes, among other fruits and vegetables. In total, Fields of Grace has provided over 2.5 million individual servings of healthy fruits and vegetables.
